Episode 27: 12 Strong

In Episode 27 of the Red 7 Movie Cast Hemant shares his thoughts on the war film, 12 Strong starring Chris Hemsworth and Michael Shannon and directed by Nicolai Fuglsig. This film follows the first team of U.S. troops to enter Afghanistan following the events of 9/11.

He didn’t watch much for TV this week, but he has started revisiting the 70’s/80’s classic Three’s Company. He also mentions a few TV series that he came across while channel surfing (on cable), including Last Man Standing and Man with a Plan.

He also gets a bit excited about a series that he hopes to get to soon on YouTube Premium called Impulse. What’s interesting about Impulse is that it is a story set in the universe set up in the 2008 Doug Liman film, Jumper starring Hayden Christensen, from Star Wars Prequel fame.

And speaking of Star Wars, Hemant talks about a book he forgot he was reading, Star Wars: From a Certain Point of View. It’s a series of short stories set during A New Hope. He’s picked up where he left off and is looking forward to working through the last half of the book.
